Detective Pikachu 2, No person has not dodged a ball and yelled “Pikachu I choose you” after watching their favorite anime: Pokemon! The viewership and success of this anime turned out to be the reason for many onscreen movies that were based on the anime, with the recent and the most successful one to be The Detective Pikachu. It was directed by Rob Letterman and was a super hit in theatres. It had all of us fall in love with the Pokemon universe all over again. So we cannot deny, that we have been waiting for a sequel of this live-action movie since then!
WILL THERE BE A PART 2 OF DETECTIVE PIKACHU? IS THE SEQUEL CONFIRMED?
On January 25, Legendary Pictures announced that Oren Uziel has joined in work with them to write the scripts for Detective Pikachu 2! So this gets us more exciting. Let us dig in some more information about the upcoming part:
WHEN WILL THE DETECTIVE PIKACHU 2 RELEASE? WHAT ARE THE UPDATES?
Our sources suggested that the filming will begin from mid-2020 or by the end of 2020. So that leaves us with only one possibility that we will have to wait for at least one year for the sequel to arrive on screens. We are expecting the release to take place around September 2021. Let us wait for further updates from the creators.
WHO WILL BE CAST ON DETECTIVE PIKACHU 2?
At the moment, we have no news about the cast of the movie. We can only expect the previous cast to reprise their roles for the second part. So we may see Justice Smith playing the lead character of Tim Goodman and Ryan Reynolds as Tim’s father, Harry Goodman. We can also expect to see Kathryn Newton as Lucy Stevens, a journalist. We are assuming Ken Watanabe to return as Harry’s friend, Detective Yoshida but we are not sure anyway.
WHAT IS THE EXPECTED STORYLINE ON DETECTIVE PIKACHU 2?
In the last part, we saw Harry restore to his human form, and Pikachu returned to its adorable two-word dialogue “Pika Pika”. In the new movie, we may see this father-son duo to solve cases together and eliminate crime. But voiceless pokemon would make the plot dull, so we are expecting some twist to be revealed when we watch the movie for our own!
